February 25, 2013
Well another week has come and gone and it sure has been interesting. We have been working our butts off but we aren't seeing the results of our efforts. The more things go wrong the more we start to look at ourselves and try to decide the things that we need to change to get things going again. This week we had a really powerful spiritual experience. We went to visit Marvin who just got baptized a couple of months ago. His mom had a broken vein in her leg and then she had stroke. She wasn't doing very well and she still isn't. We went to visit him and we had one of the most powerful spiritual experiences in the world. We offered him a blessing and he said that he wanted one. I gave him the blessing and never have I felt the spirit guide my words like it did in that moment. We just stood there afterwards without saying anything to him at all. It was just a powerful spirit that stayed there in the room with us. It was powerful, I didn't have to say anything because I knew that the spirit was doing all the talking that needed to be done. He felt better afterwards. We just told him if he needed anything to call us. It really is just a blessing to be a priesthood holder and to be able to give blessings and have spiritual experiences like that. Really makes me want to work my butt off to give a priesthood blessing completely directed by the spirit. The power of the priesthood is real - if you don't believe it - ask for a blessing.
